Well, it was operational before.  ;-)

I'll comment that there's a difference between test on your setup and 
thrown up on  =)

I would call for a review of your changes pending a merge into trunk.  At 
that point, I (and others) need to sit down and review all of your changes 
in detail.  I will admit that I haven't been able to keep as close an eye 
on your commits as I would have preferred.  (Perhaps others have?)

Agreed.  The goal will be to place it in production; however, at the least, 
we need to block (or warn) known-buggy browsers from accessing the AJAX

Per our policies, any release requires 3 +1s before going public - so you 
need to get three folks to sign off on it first.

As I'm sure OtherBill will rush to point out, you aren't technically on the 
PMC yet, so you need to find three folks who are on the PMC to cast their 
vote for release.  Once you get on the PMC, you can then vote for a 
release.  When Roy returns from vacation, he's promised to clean up our 
committer and PMC membership rosters...  -- justin
